Pool Party

We are thrilled to announce the launch of Pool Party, a series of artist designed pool toys curated by FriendsWithYou and Grey Area. The inflatable sculptures by Misaki Kawai, Jen Stark, Devin Troy Strother and FriendsWithYou each come in an edition of 50 and will be available at www.theGreyArea.com beginning December 2014 – or you can pre-order herePool Party was devised as a means to push the limits of where art and ideas can be encountered and experienced. Last year during one of the most dismal New York winters, DeWoody started fantasizing about summer, pool parties and more specifically pool toys. Recognizing that the world of inflatable toys deserved more than the White Swan and Black Shamu, she pitched the idea of making artist designed inflatable sculptures to FriendsWithYou and within days Pool Party was born. DeWoody, Borkson and Sandoval reached out to artists they loved and who could create playful pieces that would feel both unexpected and ubiquitous as pool toys.From a giant googly-eyed rock, a rainbow colored intergalactic wheel, a pair of oversized pink breasts, to a seven-and-half-foot tall basketball player, each toy reflects the practice and work of the artist who created it.For more information and images please contact  info@shopgreyarea.com
